Suleiman will be presenting his latest research on Performance-Driven Design at the World Architecture Congress UIA 2017 in Seoul, South Korea. The lecture is titled ""Computation as a Driver for Quantitative Design Decisions"

Suleiman Alhadidi - UIA 2017


The presentation will cover series of projects where quantitative performance driven design was employed to drive design decisions and inform better solutions for well-known buildings in Australia designed in collaboration at HASSELL and BVN architects.

Sunlight in public spaces shapes the character and rhythm of cities, they have the power to control how people utilize them. Major cities councils such as Sydney and New York councils have adjusted their planning regulations in the last few years to limit the impact of new developments on their public spaces. Recently imposed guidelines, such as the State Environmental Planning Policy No65 in New South Wales (SEPP65) and No Additional Over-shadowing legislations in Australia, have challenged design methods; requiring residential buildings to be designed based on more prescriptive environmental performance requirements. This paper looks at a computational design method developed using quantitative solar analysis to measure planning compliance and the impact of planning proposals on public spaces and reduce the overshadowing impact on surrounding residential buildings and public spaces. A computational design method has been developed based on environmental and financial metrics to satisfy both the planning controls and the client’s commercial interests so as to produce rapid design alternatives.
